I want to share the point of view of an illustrious economist for me : Thomas Sowell. Thomas Sowell bring significant insight on economy and serious problems.

The first video on charter school (how to improve education) :

The facts we can find on charter school :

  • More efficient (less bad outcome for children, cost less)

  • Hire younger teacher and less "qualified teachers"

  • Better skills for kids for same ethnic, same building, same social economic background

  • Public school 7% pass the maths test and Charter school 100% pass the maths test

  • Charter school impose discipline (if the kids don't behave correctly, there are send back to home)

  • State goes against charter schools because a lot of teachers would loose their jobs.

  • Poverty don't prevent people to learning

  • Public schools have all kinds of indoctrination courses on which they waste children's time (even if correct it does not justify the waste of time)

Thomas Sowell : "Do people who advocate special government programs for blacks realize that the federal government has had special programs for American Indians, including affirmative action, since the early nineteenth century - and that American Indians remain one of the few groups worse off than blacks ?"
